Construction workers are exposed to a wider variety of hazards and face a greater risk of work-related injury or fatality than employees in any other U.S. industry. Construction accidents may include, but are not limited to, roof-related falls, scaffolding accidents, lifting equipment failure, fires and explosions, trench collapses, crane collapses, compressed gases accidents and welding accidents.

If you have sustained an injury while working on a construction site, you may be entitled to seek monetary compensation from the party at fault.  New York personal injury law allows victims of negligence to file a civil lawsuit against liable parties to recover damages for their medical expenses, lost wages, physical pain and emotional suffering. 

New York Labor Law Sections 240 and 241, are known as the "safe place to work" or the "scaffold" laws. These sections state that if a worker is injured in a New York construction accident as a result of falling from a height, or as the result of being hit with something that falls from a height, the owner and the contractor are responsible. This is true whether or not the worker was at fault or refused to use safety equipment. These laws exist to make certain that all workers have a safe place to work, especially on construction sites.

If you or a loved one has suffered as a result of a construction accident, contact Bragoli and Associates, P.C., the construction accident attorneys.
